Natalie Dormer Portrait Sitting

Natalie Dormer Portrait Sitting Rory Lewis Photographer London Portrait PhotographerActress Natalie Dormer, star of Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games and The Tudors sat for a portrait at the London Studio this several weeks ago. I wrote to Natalie inviting her to sit for my Expressive Portraits Project just over a year ago; it just goes to show how many letters and requests she receives. Natalie is exceptionally talented with an incredibly natural beauty. As a realist portrait photographer Natalie was a little apprehensive of my style. In the modern world people are obsessed with removing the detail through airbrushing.

My style is to preserve even line every mark every mole. I try to present my subjects as they really are, flaws and all, while allowing for moments of candidness and vulnerability. Less austere and more deliberate than a mug shot, my work often brings facial features into high relief, allowing expressiveness to recede and making the sitter seem somehow up-close and removed at the same time. Natalie indulged me, enabling me to capture a series of wonderful frames. Her apprehension turned to excitement when she viewed the final results which edified her unique and Natural Beauty.

Natalie Dormer (born 11 February 1982) is an English actress. She is best known for her roles as Anne Boleyn on the Showtime series The Tudors (2007–10), as Margaery Tyrell on the HBO series Game of Thrones (2012–present), Moriarty on the CBS series Elementary (2013–15), and as Cressida in the science-fiction adventure films The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 (2014) and Part 2 (2015). She has been nominated for Best Performance at the Gemini Awards for her work in The Tudors. She has also been nominated for a Screen Actor's Guild Award for her performance in Game of Thrones.

Jennifer’s Review 

Written on: 25/10/2015 Via Reviewcentre.com

Liverpool & London Actors Headshots“From the moment I read Rory’s website I knew I wanted him to take my Headshots. I loved his background and passion for headshot photography. I contacted him and booked online – it was quick, easy and his correspondence was excellent, friendly and I was excited to attend the photoshoot. I took my sister along and as soon as we arrived we loved the arty environment in the heart of Liverpool. We found parking easy and were kindly shown to Rory’s studio by another chap working for the Retro cinema. Rory had an assistant trainee and this was fab as we could learn some tricks of the trade whilst he took my photos. He showed me the shots all the way through and I loved them. I knew I had the headshot I wanted within the first 5 mins as he is such a wonderful photographer with a great eye and making you feel so relaxed so portraying your true self. He also knows what the industry and Spotlight look for so he directs you throughout the shoot. He is courteous, friendly and fun and made the whole experience perfect.

When I received the final retouched Headshots I was so thrilled they were wonderful. I will certainly use him again in the future and I would highly recommend any actor or individual wanting Headshots or photography to contact Rory. You will be thrilled with the result.”

Craig Fitness/Model Portfolio

Ex-Solider Craig has been told by many people he should be a model. Craig scoured the internet and found my website booking a model/fitness portfolio session at the Liverpool Studio this week. It was wonderful to meet and work with Craig.

 

Unsure of the whole process, I helped him step by step through the photoshoot, directing him in poses etc. I’m sure Craig will have a great career as a male model. If you are looking for a model portfolio or are interested in a career in modelling please get in touch, I have a number of suitable packages.

Ball Room Dancers Ping and Valeria, booked a Dance Portfolio Photoshoot at the Liverpool Studio. Both being competition dancers they wanted a series of photographs which demonstrated their dancing talent and partnership as Ball Room Competitors. The photoshoot was quite a challenge, both Ping and Valeria danced several routines as I clicked the shutter to capture each perfect moment.

Client Reviews & Feedback

Rory Lewis Photographer Actors Headshots“Excellent professional, easy going, brilliant experience. I booked with Rory at his Liverpool studio, which is very close to Lime Street Station, so easy to get to. All contact between us was prompt and clear and all business was complete before the photo session. Ive been photographed professionally for 16 years in London, Edinburgh and manchester and these are the best I’ve had. As well as advice and direction from Rory,he was happy to take my lead on different shots and let me feed into the session my experience of what I required. Very happy and will be booking future sessions to update regularly my cv photo and with different looks etc. Thanks Rory. Good bloke.” Keith Faulker Source Google Reviews

 

Actors Headshots Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester, London“I booked a short, 1-hour Actors Headshots session as a ‘taster’. Rory’s customer care was excellent from the start, with clear communication and guidance beforehand and throughout. Rory has an easy, conversational manner that made the hour tick by without any sense of stress or ‘production-line’. As a result, I was very pleasantly surprised that it produced over 170 shots – which gave plenty of scope for choice for the final finished image. Both this and the initial contact sheet came through very quickly. The only delay in the process was from me taking so long to decide which image to choose!”

 

Rosanna Pope Actress Headshots Review

Rosanna, booked her actors headshots session at the Liverpool Studio this week to create her first portfolio of acting headshots. I specialise in Actors Headshots, this separates me from photographers who offer many different services and may not have the experience in the specialised field of Acting Headshots.

 

I have experience working with the worlds greatest acting talent, honing my skills to make each headshot a comfortable process. Rosanna booked my Package 02, which gave her a no time limit session; plenty of time to relax and get used to the process enabling Rosanna to achieve the best images from her photoshoot.

“Relaxing atmosphere, great headshots!!!”

Via Review Centre

First time for my daughter having her actress headshots taken. However, this was not a problem as the session was very relaxed and my daughter was made to feel at ease. Great choice of photos, which made choosing just one a bit difficult as they were all great!!! Great communication throughout, great value for money.
